JBL EON615 15” Two-Way Multipurpose Self-Powered Sound Reinforcement
JBL EON615Completely rethinking how truly good an affordable self-contained, portable PA system can be, JBL engineers purposely designed and built the EON600 from the ground up featuring JBL’s advanced waveguide technology, JBL designed and manufactured transducers, and convenient, wireless remote control of its onboard DSP EQ parameters via Bluetooth.
This total redesign of the EON platform leverages the latest technologies in cabinet materials, acoustic science, transducer design and user friendliness that delivers the extraordinary quality of a high-end studio monitor in a fully professional, highly flexible, easy to use, portable system for today’s working musicians and sound providers.
The EON615’s extraordinary performance results from a breakthrough approach to waveguide design. JBL engineers examined the radiation characteristics of the EON’s high and low frequency drivers at 36 different points employing JBL’s exclusive, state of the art measurement techniques, then designed individual waveguides for both components that control the sound radiation at the high frequencies, the crossover point and at the low frequencies. Special fluting is designed into the structure that guides the frequencies through the full range of the system. The result is consistent response throughout its 90 degree coverage pattern. The quality and consistency between on axis and off axis response delivers uniform coverage and high intelligibility throughout the coverage area, which means the EON615’s smooth, transparent sound is the same for the entire audience.
Enclosure designs have been optimized for ideal acoustic resonance taking advantage of injection moulding techniques and mechanical shaping of the enclosures. This results in tremendous increases in cabinet volumes which enable better acoustic performance while maintaining the same footprint. Four intelligently positioned handles make the 600 easy to carry and move around. Integrated hardware mounts, designed into the enclosures, allow each model to be flown when required. And indexed feet moulded into the enclosures allow for convenient storage and transport, secure stacking for stage monitor and traditional stand up configurations, and unique acoustic configurations.
Knowing that fine tuning your sound needs sophisticated yet
convenient control, JBL engineers developed an iOS and Android
supported Bluetooth v4.0 compliant interface for controlling master
volume, adjusting the 5-way, user definable parametric EQ, and saving
and recalling user presets.
EON615 features built-in 1000 watt power amplification designed, as
with all EON components to perfectly complement the performance of the
drivers, delivering exceptional headroom with power to spare whether a
fixed PA application or the demands of a gigging band. Driving the
custom JBL high and low frequency transducers, the system provides
massive sound pressure levels with lower distortion throughout the
system’s full frequency range.
The rear panel provides XLR-1/4” combination inputs for each of the
system’s two channels, with individual gain controls and signal presence
LED’s. A master volume adjusts overall system level with a convenient
limit LED indicator. Onboard EQ Presets allow setting the system as a
Main, house speaker, Monitor speaker, crossover contour for adding an
EON subwoofer, and a Speech setting for high intelligibility in simple
PA and announcement applications.
